 Your “roadblock” is about as contrived as it gets. It is an inane statement to make. We see this kind of thinking on the Apple discussion boards when someone’s Apple TV needs to be restored using iTunes. When told that they will need a micro USB cable to complete the process they become enraged, demanding that Apple supply them with the necessary cable and lamenting their now “useless” device because they refuse to go down to the local Walgreens and buy the needed $4.99...
I don’t think that $2800 Omega watch I saw at Sam’s Club last night is “completely waterproof” either. They make diving watches for that purpose you know. But somehow I don’t think that was your reason for posting anyway. The vibe of your posts have “troll” written all over them.
I was in my local Sam’s Club (Walmart) store last night. In the jewelry department I found a $2100 Tag Heuer watch and a $2800 Omega watch... in a WALMART! Now I’m confused about all this “luxury” stuff.
 Apple is going to get burned in China eventually. The pseudo capitalist economy controlled by totalitarian elites cannot remain stable for very long. The middle class there will crash eventually and I’m not even a trained economist. It’s common sense. Google chose to leave China. Apple can’t at this point.
Meanwhile I just received an email from StubHub, the big national venue ticket reselling service, announcing their Apple Watch app. I don’t recall if there was any such announcement for an Android Wear watch. Tons of important companies are announcing apps for the Apple Watch, jumping on the bandwagon.    So this sophomoric easter egg says loads about the two companies. There’s a reason Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson made that dumb movie “The Internship” about Google...
The Apple discussion forums are already filling up with idiotic questions, wild claims of bugs and malfunctions. You know, the usual. Just another day in Apple-land. 
Perhaps you fail to understand the difference between “waterproof” and “water resistant.” From a legal and warranty perspective the difference is night and day. And Apple IS advertising the watch as IPX7 compliant which is a set of specific standards for water resistance. So your assertion that Apple “probably noticed that the waterproofing isn’t perfect” is complete nonsense bull excrement. Think before you put fingers to keyboard.
Can you block a Global Moderator? Apparently not.
Well, just like other Apple new product launches we will have to endure the initial barrage of negativism, the jokes, the nastiness, the declarations of Epic Fail, the Apple death spiral clock, etc. After it becomes clear that the watch will be yet another Apple hit and a paradigm changing, disruptive device all that will subside and be replaced by the now standardized “Only stupid people buy Apple stuff” meme.
Actually there are Samsung unbxoing videos now too. Apparently a large number of tech fans are also quite OCD.
